Spend My Money! - Monitors!

I woke up today and my wonderful 7-year old iiyama screen no longer works.

I don't want a downgrade so the new monitor must meet these specs:
19" minimum
1600x1200 @ 85Hz (*LCD monitors can ignore minimum refresh rates)
$800 Max

Preferences:
CRT vs. LCD. I use Photoshop professionally so I prefer CRT's over LCD's. However LCD's are acceptable as long as they have a large color gamut.
DVI would be nice, but CRT's tend to use standard VGA connections
I do have a HDTV tuner so I would like a 1920x1080 capable screen but just for fun.
Weight: <80 Lbs. The desk can hold much more than that, but the screen will sit on a VCR and sits at the back of the desk so I have to lean over. (strain on back)

My research discovered these 3:
Samsung
ADI
iiyama

Any additions/deals/sales/insider info are much appreciated

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^
